Football: And so it begins. The Red Hook football team’s first game will be a non-league showdown with Poughkeepsie on Sept. 5 at 6:30 p.m. They will also be in a multi-scrimmage at FDR High School Aug. 30 at 10am.
Tennis: Shawn Holzmann, Red Hook graduate and owner-operator of Break Point Tennis, won the single’s mens tournament at the Ulster County Open/Dick Smith Memorial tournament on July 27 — and made history doing so. By beating Ravi Ramaswami, 6-3, 4-3 (Ramaswami left in the second set due to injury), Holzmann became the first person in two decades to win the Ulster County Open triple crown: the men’s singles, men’s doubles, and mixed doubles.
